I just found a cartoon from 1929 where Billy Murray does the voice over...
Never knew it existed!


  8:49am Steve in Hudson Valley:

Wow, first time listening to this show. Amazing stuff, thanks.
  3:29pm Castor Oyl:

Speaking of Billy Murray and cartoons,I had never heard that Popeye record you played a few months ago.What label was it on? I knew the same song with different lyrics on a Peter Pan 45,which also was uploaded to the FMU blog in 2007.
  11:17am danny:

How about a TV Show where you and your son go back in time in an antique time machine and you encounter the music you play on your show in it's contemporary context?
